Jazz on the River - 1947

With Sidney Bechet (would he double on soprano sax, that he was mostly playing those days?) and Albert Nicholas on clarinet, Danny Barker on guitar, James P. Johnson on piano, Pops Foster on bass and Baby Dodds on drums, this must have been a trip to jazz heaven!

Line-up is very similar to those of the "This Is Jazz" broadcasts from May 31, 1947 (remove Sidney Bechet, add Wild Bill Davison on cornet, George Brunies on trombone and Blue Lu Barker on vocals, and put Joe Sullivan instead of James P. Johnson) and June 7, 1947 (remove Sidney Bechet, add Wild Bill Davison on cornet and put Freddie Moore instead of Baby Dodds), so the remaining -and not listed in the New York Times article- musicians might be Wild Bill Davison on cornet and Jimmy Archey ("This Is Jazz" broadcasts from June 14 and June 21) or George Brunies on trombone.

Any help from moldy figs and other dried fruits is much appreciated!
